PhotoMechanic and Lightroom Color Coding

->> Just looking for some insight as to what box I've accidentally checked/unchecked somehow. In the past, I've color coded my RAW files in PM, done an edit in LR, and exported JPEGs back to the same folder and they have kept the color code assigned to them originally. Now, for some reason, when I export them, they have no color coding and I have to go through again and sort them out.

I can't seem to figure out what box I've accidentally changed.

->> Could be a check box in either program or both. Did one or both of them do an upgrade whereupon the problem started?

->> Possibly try going to PM's preferences, in the "General" tab, under "Color Classes", click the lighting bolt icon and select "Adobe Lightroom". This will make sure the two programs use the same colors.

->> The text associated with each PhotoMechanic color (General --> Color Classes) carry across during a Lightroom import as "Label." In Lightroom, you can access/filter by the "Color Class" text using Library Module, Library Filter, Metadata, Label.

->> Check on the export fields in LR, and make sure that you are including meda data. If the info in the label field is wiped out on the JPEG export or changed then PM won't know what to do.
